Welcome to my little corner of the web!

I love beauty.  All beauty.  The arch of a brow, the flush of a cheek, the perfect shade of lipstick.   Lush, gorgeous hair that is shimmering with colors.  As a kid, I was drawn to the Supermodels of the ’80’s:  Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, etc.  Even the dancers in the MTV music videos held my attention with their flawless perfection.  Their hair may have been defying gravity, but it was still beautiful.  Kevyn Aucoin, the amazing makeup artist, was an inspiration to me. His makeovers of celebrities were like works of art.  I pored over his books, studying his artful contouring, highlighting and shadowing.   I discovered the glamorous pinup girls of the ’40’s, with their gorgeous brows and red lips.  Their perfectly set hair, with victory rolls, pincurls and waves, just oozed style and class.   I knew back then, as my mom gave me yet another home perm, that this was my destiny.

Experimenting with all of the tools of the trade has made me a product junkie.   If you were to ask my husband, he’d probably say that I have a problem.  Not just makeup, but all girly girl stuff.  Especially lipstick.  I recently counted 12 lip products in my purse.   That’s not counting the shades in my makeup bag, makeup drawer and secret stash.  Nothing wakes up my face quite like lipstick, although eyebrows come in a close second.   Some upcoming posts will include my personal review of a new beauty gem I picked up, hoping it’s the answer to all of my beauty prayers.

This blog is new for me, and I will try to post at least once or twice a week.   With all of the upcoming weddings, I’m hoping to post some new gallery images as well!

If you have any questions, or want a product reviewed,  just email me and I will address it on the blog.   Thanks for checking out my site, and check back for future posts!
